This year's theme is "Emergent Truth in Soulful Times: How do we Face, Speak and Act in Truth in a World of Falsehood and Fear" How may we find a voice of deep authenticity to re-present the truth/situation of the earth, address the anxiety and despair of the current environmental crisis while maintaining hope and psychological balance?
This form helps us organize your presentation proposal and prepare to support you.if you have any questions or concerns please reach out to Jan or Shmee directly. We will contact you within a couple of weeks of your submission to let you know that we have received your proposal along with any additional info needed.
Accepted presenters may attend the full weekend conference free of charge (including Saturday evening dinner), and are welcomed to bring publications and announcements to share. Workshop presenters will be assigned a volunteer staffer as support. We do ask that presenters refrain from self-promotion in their presentations and trust that whatever you are promoting will be introduced and your presence will be the best publicity for your work.
We are here to support you in as smooth and ease-full process as possible but please be patient as we evaluate and slowly respond to each proposal! However, you may not get a final response/decision until mid-January 2019.
The format of the 2019 program is a Saturday/Sunday (April 6 - 7) program.
We are currently recruiting presenters who may offer:1) a 50 minute comprehensive address that allows for at least 10-15 minutes of audience Q&A.2) 25 minute presentations that are succinct ecotherapy statements/descriptions or an alternative program (such as a musical/poetic interlude)3) An Ecopsychology or Ecotherapy Workshop: These will extend to 115 minutes. These are post-lunch "break-out" programs that are hosted out on the land at Earthrise. Most workshops will have a group of 6 to 30 participants. Attendees chose which workshop they wish to take. 4) a special 1.5 hour program on Saturday evening that is creative (musical, story telling, etc)
Deadline for submissions has been extended to midnight January 18, 2019. If you can't make this deadline, email us with your intended program and we will consider an extension.
We will be responding to proposals on Feb 2. If you don't hear from us by the weekend of Feb 2/3, email us at email@example.com. Also feel free to send any questions or comments to us at that address.
